Peranthrun is the capital and second largest city of Mero-Curgovina after Corae, located in the province of Perana on the northern coast of the Gulf of Ilparad. The city is famed for its arts, history, and importance in the political and financial fields and as the capital of both the historic Merandy region and of modern Mero-Curgovina. As a natural harbour, Peranthrun has been inhabited continuously by Merands for nearly 2,500 years and is considered one of the most historically prominent trade cities and military ports along the northern coast of the Eurybian.

The first settlement associated with the modern city of Peranthrun was founded by Merand merchantmen in 1101 AD. Named the capital of the kingdom of the Merands by Gizuric in 1207, the city became known as Peraunfrung for the local thrun barrow associated with the tribal ruler Peran. Following the close of the Fifty Years' War Peranthrun became the capital of the Union of the Merands and Curgovs under Ermangairn in 1538. The city was racked with political violence during the Grand Campaigns and suffered severe damages in the final days of the Govic Revolutionary War. This was later repaired during the Govic economic miracle, with major restructuring of the city's ruined districts to support modern economic centers and new port facilities. Despite destruction caused by the occupying forces, Peranthrun's Old City remains intact as a center of tourism and Merand culture in Artemia.
